As a consumer and end user, the customer of our online shop has, in addition to the rights described here, all the legal rights under Spanish and European legislation relating to the sale of consumer goods. We inform you that these legal rights can never be affected by these ‘General Terms and Conditions’.
In the case of defective products, we inform you that, in accordance with current legislation, BODEGAS VIRTUS S.L., S.A. must proceed, as appropriate, to repair, replace, reduce the price or terminate the contract, which will be free of charge for you. BODEGAS VIRTUS S.L. shall be liable for any lack of conformity that becomes apparent within ONE (1) year of delivery.
In this regard, it is understood that there is a lack of conformity when:
The product does not conform to the description given by the seller and does not possess the qualities that the seller has presented to the consumer and user in the form of a sample.
– The product is not suitable for the uses for which products of the same type are normally intended.
– The product is not suitable for any special use required by the consumer and user and he has made this known to the seller and the seller has admitted that the product is suitable for that particular use.
– The product does not present the usual quality and performance of a product of the same type which the consumer and user may reasonably expect from the nature of the product and its characteristics as disclosed in advertising and on its labelling.
In the absence of proof to the contrary, it shall be presumed that any lack of conformity that becomes apparent within TWO (2) MONTHS after delivery of the product was already present when the product was delivered. The consumer and end user must inform the seller of the lack of conformity as soon as possible after its detection. Failure to comply with this period shall not entail the loss of the right to the corresponding remedy, the consumer being liable, however, for the damages or losses actually caused by the delay in the communication and due to the continued use of the good by the consumer once the lack of conformity has been detected.
BODEGAS VIRTUS S.L. will only serve orders in Spain (Peninsula and Balearic Islands). During the management of the order itself, if the product and/or service purchased is not available, the customer will be notified by telephone to indicate that it is not available and to try to find a solution.
